Hello Gorgeous, again a Shoe Card in Green :) and one Retro Birthday Card

I made today one card using my new stencil named Houndstooth. I really love this pattern and I have also some clothes with this pattern :) 

I think in next posts I will still playing with my new Stencil.... it is fun how so easy and fast to making my own background paper using all those Stencil :) (as you know I am not buying much Design papers, I have some design papers but its old one LOL :) )

Here is the card I made:

Have you ever fall in love with yes I always fall in love with shoe stamp...I dont know why but I can make many cards with it if I get one new shoe stamp set :).

I am inspired with the lovely and adorable card from Shirley:

I CASE-ing her sketch and her idea using that shoe Image....I am not good at making splatter also no splatter at my card :)

Also I used my new Stencil and gave the green distress ink (Crushed Olive) on it 

and then for the shoe I colored with the same distress ink and then I sponged more at the edge area of the shoe:

I adore Shirley simplicity and the clever idea with that layering paper.
